What we do

Food for Charities brings food that supermarkets/wholesalers would normally throw away to charities and people in need.  This is a win-win-win:

  • It cuts down on the tonnes of perfectly good food that are thrown away every day
  • It provides fresh, healthy food to people who may not otherwise be able to afford it
  • It offers a chance to talk about how to eat healthily and cook ‘new’ foods

Food for Charities started and supports:

The wonderful Nick O’Dwyer also made a video about the summer of 2020, where Food for Charities organised 70 volunteers to delivery 12,000 food parcels:


If you’re thinking of setting up something similar, have a look at the blogs, and at our information about setting up community fridges.  And if that doesn’t answer your questions, do contact us: we’ll be happy to help.
